Intro: B B Abm E B Gb B

  B             B   
I've seen love go by my door
     Abm               E 
It's never been this close before
  B                       Gb    Gb   
Never been so easy or so slow
 B                   B  
Been shooting in the dark too long
   E 
When somethin's not right it's wrong
  B                  Gb              B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go


  B               B   
Dragon clouds so high above
    Abm             E 
I've only known careless love
   B                     Gb    Gb   
It's always hit me from below
   B                   B  
This time around it's more correct
     E 
Right on target, so direct
    B                 Gb             B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go

Interlude: B B Abm E B Gb B

  B                  B   
Purple clover, Queen Anne's Lace
   Abm                   E 
Crimson hair across your face
  B                         Gb       Gb   
You could make me cry if you don't know
  B                          B  
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of
    E 
You might be spoilin' me too much, love
  B                Gb                 B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go


    Gb                             B
Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' crazy
    Gb                            B
Crickets talkin' back and forth in rhyme
     Db  
Blue river runnin' slow and lazy
       E                                            Gb     Gb   
I could stay with you forever and never realize the time


  B             B   
Situations have ended sad
  Abm                   E 
Relationships have all been bad
       B                         Gb     Gb   
Mine've been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud
  B                         B  
But there's no way I can compare
  E 
All those scenes to this affair


B                  Gb                B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go


  Gb                               B
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm doin'
   Gb                     B
Stayin' far behind without you
   Db  
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin'
  E                                    Gb
Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to


  B                  B   
I'll look for you in old Honolulu
  Abm                 E 
San Francisco, Ashtabula
  B                       Gb     Gb   
Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know
  B                        B  
But I'll see you in the sky above
      E 
In the tall grass, in the ones I love
  B                 Gb                 B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go
  B                 Gb                 B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go
  B                 Gb                 B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go

Interlude: B  B  Abm  E  B  Gb

B   B     Abm   E 
Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh


  B                 Gb                 B
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go
